Two pics

This week I would like to show two pictures.
First one is a group photo taken in 1930-ies. I am not sure what organization it was - the caps seems different than student caps which can be seen in previous posts. At least I suppose so ;). Maybe someone can help. My grandfather (mom's dad) is marked with a cross over his head.

Second is a typical family photo taken in 1938. My mom is two and looks like a boy because of her short hair. It changed in a year - look at her in 1939 in some previous posts. And I like this photo.

It would be interesting to know where the first photo was taken.
The second is a lovely family photo.

Your Mom is so cute, and they look happy. The first picture cracks me up; it doesn't look like anybody is very enthused for having to pose for it, lol.

Take care,

Kathy M.

If you can read the posters and plaque in the background, they may help. I could only make out P.W.K. on the posters and Drweski on the plaque. If you know the language, you could probably read more by enlarging the picture.

Great photos. Though they do not look like student caps, the adults sure look like teachers. I'd think a school or maybe a factory?

I suppose it could be a school - my grandfather looks younger then in a students photos. The photo is really high quality - I have a scan ca 60 Mpix and each face is clear, but posters are out of focus. These are lottery posters, but such lottery took place every year or more often. The plaque is for Jarogniew Drweski, Mayor of Poznan city, who died in 1921. So most probably it was taken in Poznan. Maybe a school trip. But, as Kathy noticed, young people do not look happy, do they?

A very sombre-looking group but it's nice to see the ladies' handbags - they're very much "of that time". The portrait of your mum and grandparents is a handsome photo. Jo

What wonderful pictures. I would give a small fortune for some of those hats featured in that first photograph.

Witam,
nie wiem czy bywa Pan jeszcze na blogu, ale niestety nie znalazłam żadnego innego kontaktu, otóż sprawa jest trochę skomplikowana postaram się ją w skrócie opisać. Przygotowuję prace na temat moich okolic i w małej miejscowości Krasna jest grób nieznanych żołnierzy, którzy zginęli w ataku hitlerowców, z pośród nich tylko jeden został zidentyfikowany z tego co udało mi się ustalić przez słynnego kompozytora Stefana Rachonia, (czyli z tego co zrozumiałam z opisów zdjęć, z Pana dalszego przodka chyba brata prababci) był to jego brat Adolf Rachoń czyli także brat Pana prababci, i tu rodzi się moje pytanie czy wie Pan może coś więcej na jego temat, bądź może ma Pan jakieś jego zdjęcia?

Pozdrawiam
Katarzyna Kotwica
